Dr. Wladimir Wertelecki: We had here the BP disaster; it’s a horrible disaster…

When we dig up mother earth… we bring up… radioactivity…

Oil is the same thing; there is no oil without some mercury and some radioactivity.

So we had enormous quantities of oil spilled and picked up by organisms and recycled and concentrated and each one who eats one, eats one, eats one… each concentrates more and more and more and more until the pregnant women decides to have a good dinner with some kind of marine product.

So if we are interested, if BP has consequences for the unborn, we don’t have a baseline… we have no reference point…

Wladimir Wertelecki, founder and chairman of the Department of Medical Genetics and Birth Defects Center of the University of South Alabama, in the U.S. Prior to his training in Medical Genetics at Harvard University Medical School, Dr. Wertelecki trained in Pediatrics at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, Washington University. Later, he served as Senior Surgeon, U.S. Public Health Commission Corps at the Epidemiology Branch of the National Cancer Institute […] He has extensively studied the effects of the radiation released by the Chernobyl meltdown on public health, particularly in children […]

    and then there is the radioactive polonium in tobacco products… oh joy.

    Radiation for everyone, everywhere.

    Sorry, Ms./Mr. Harward Scholar. We don't need you to tell us what we told you almost 2&1/2 years ago. Often times, common sense outwits scientific testing as it labors along, way behind.

    It's good to have scientific proof, but we need to listen more to common sense from the get go.

    I'd have to dig up the links now, but earlier this year folks were circulating pics of deformed Gulf shrimp being sold in Texas grocery stores.

    Pregnant and young women who eat Gulf seafood are gambling with their health. The truly soul-crushing part is that most of them don't know even know it. I genuinely support President Obama but it sure seems like the FDA and the federal government in general was more than happy to let the public just move on like nothing catastrophic happened. (Also see, erm, Fukushima…)

    Earlier this year the State Of Texas banned fishing totally in the northern Gulf and after Hurricane Isaac the oil and BP crap has come back again and may take years again to clean up best thing we could do is send submarines down into the canyons of the gulf and suck up the crap filter it in a special refinery that needs to be built.
